9 of the Worst Broadway Musicals of All Time


Everyone remembers the best Broadway musicals, but what about the worst of them? Some plays are true clunkers that closed after only a few performances, while others managed to eek out a respectable run before being forgotten by fans and critics. The following Broadway musicals are the worst of the worst, based on critical reception and how long they lasted before bringing down the final curtain. 

Other Broadway Bombs

Bad musicals tend to disappear, and perhaps rightly so. Thus, opportunities to actually see the big flops of the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s are rare indeed. Shows like “Kelly,” “Home Sweet Homer,” and “Flahooley” have all but vanished, although the last of these did receive a fascinating cast recording.

Other shows that live on in Broadway infamy include the 1983 mystery spoof “The Moose Murders”, the 2004 adaptation of the bestseller “Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All,” and the 2015 flop “Amazing Grace.” The former two of these plays rang down the curtain after a single show; the third at least managed a couple of months. Other musicals managed respectable Broadways runs, but were critical duds, including “Mamma Mia,” (1999), which is one of the longest-running musicals in Broadway history.
